En Route to Queenstown
We are heading to Queenstown soon, and really looking forward to it. We are informally poking around for places to live… and renting a house in the meantime. We found this cool spot — QueenstownChicChalet.com on the site that suggested here on the blog called BookABach.com. I’ve never heard this word “Bach” before in reference to a rental house/apartment… am I alone in this?
Daily Photo – Under the Umbrella at Sunset
We took this during our fun PhotoWalk in San Clemente. It’s a wonderful beach there – not too crowded, a perfect beach, and an idyllic pier. Just throw in a few clouds, and we end up with a perfect sunset!
Every 100 feet or so, these thatched-roof umbrellas are spread out. Composing with these and a wide-angle lens is kind of challenging, but fun. I noticed that after I got a wide-angle lens that it opened up a whole new range of compositional complexities. Walking around a scene has to be done with a whole new perspective, since you are able to capture more than a human can see in a single viewing-cone. But, the challenge is kind of fun to compensate for the lens and try to put together something that feels right.
